2013 Draft – With the 123rd overall pick, the Seahawks select…

…wide receiver Chris Harper from Kansas State.  Harper is a high school QB who converted to WR in college and didn't put up big numbers in Kansas State's run-heavy attack, but nevertheless was the team's leading receiver in his junior and senior years.  He's got the size (6'1", 229 lbs) and enough speed (4.5 second forty) to potentially be the big, physical receiver that Carroll has been looking for since Mike Williams was released after the 2011 season. 

Harper isn't likely to outrun many defensive backs, but if he can put his QB's understanding of the game to work at the pro level he has the potential to become a reliable possession receiver in the mold of Anquan Boldin and T.J. Houshmandzadeh (preferably minus the negative headlines).
